Basically: the side effects of hormone blockers are nowhere near as bad as the impact on trans kids’ mental health of being denied access to gender-affirming care. I think back to the Australian Story ep I watched on the Royal Children Hospital Melbourne’s Gender Service (see relevant link post) and I just feel like that model of care should be available in more places.
